Complete the Contact Form to get the process started. You will receive a link to my VIP Design Day Calendar, so you can choose a date that works with your schedule. I recommend giving yourself at least a week or two to get all of your materials prepped. You will also choose your desired template at this time.
A completed Design Agreement and payment in full is required to secure your VIP Design Day. Dates are only held for 24 hours.
You will receive an invite to a shared Google Drive Folder, so you can upload all of your branding, images, and requested content/materials. A Design Questionnaire will be provided to help guide you through all of the specific content needed for your new site, based on the HTD template you choose.
A 90-minute Strategy Call will be scheduled within the week before your VIP Design Day. We will go over your project in detail at this time.
You can go about your usual routine as I get to work customizing your new site! I will send you some updates throughout the day so you can see the progress and provide helpful feedback. In order to complete your project in one day, it is important that I will be able to communicate with you. Facebook Messenger tends to work the best, but we can discuss the best option for you. At the end of the day, I will send you a Sign Off Form upon completion and we'll get your new site launched!
After your website is launched, you will have 7 days of email support from me for troubleshooting and general Q&A. Sometimes little hiccups occur, but you can rest assured that I will be available to help you immediately following your launch.
Showit has an extensive library of written guides and helpful videos that you will have full access to. They also offer live chat for ongoing support included with your Showit membership.
Ensure your content is ready and get it all uploaded by the deadline! This is absolutely essential! Definitely spend a good amount of time reviewing your written content to ensure it is up to date and ready for your new site. You will also need to pull together lots of images for me, which I will have you rename for SEO purposes (I will send you details on how to do this). Write down your start-to-finish session process, so we can include this info on your site.
Showit is the platform that I trusted for my own photography business, so I know firsthand just how intuitive and amazing their websites are. I was a beta-tester for them when they first launched back in 2008. In 2016, I had the opportunity to test for them again when they released their HTML5 version. I not only KNOW Showit, I genuinely love their platform and their amazing crew! When it comes to designing with Showit, anything is possible! I love the freedom and flexibility that it offers!
Showit has three subscription options to choose from. Depending on how your site will be structured, this will determine which subscription will be the best. The major factor is whether or not you intend to include a Wordpress blog. I can help you navigate this process when you create your account. Keep in mind, you won't need to create your account until we get close to launching. Showit offers either annual or monthly billing. You can review their prices here.
I accept 3-4 VIP Design Day clients per month. If you're ready to jump on this service, I highly recommend getting on my calendar now! This is a newer service that I added in 2023, which have been very popular with my design clients.
To secure a place on my calendar, a signed design agreement and retainer is required.
Absolutely! Many of my design clients do! Although you will have complete access to your new site, there is a bit of a learning curve with Showit. I will provide you with a link to their Help Center, which is loaded with video and written tutorials. If you the DIY type, you likely won't need to rely on me for updates and changes. However, if you prefer to leave all of your website needs in my hands, that is also an option. I offer hourly Showit assistance, as often as you need.
